'Let's Have a Shutdown' If Congress Can't Reach Immigration Deal

Patty Aguilar | 07 February, 2018, 07:11

"If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety ... let's shut it down", the president said at a White House roundtable discussion on MS-13 gang violence and illegal immigration.

"We are not advocating for the shutdown, that's the fault of the Democrats not doing their job". "We'll do a shutdown and it's worth it for our country. I'd love to see a shutdown if we don't get this stuff taken care of". I can't speak for everybody at the table but I will tell you, I would shut it down over this issue", he said, adding that if the USA doesn't straighten out its borders "we don't have a country.

The plan calls for increased security along the US-Mexico border, but stops short of authorising the $25-30bn that Mr Trump had proposed for the planned wall.

"I would shut it down over this issue". I have great confidence in the people.

The Senate's top Republican and Democrat signaled a deal was imminent that would raise both defense and non-defense spending maximum levels for the next two years, beyond the limits imposed by a 2011 law, clearing the way for lawmakers to swiftly pass a temporary spending bill before the government runs out of money at midnight Thursday.

The House bill would increase Pentagon funding to $584 billion and guarantee it through September 30, while the rest of the government would continue to be funded at 2017 levels through March 23.

The bill would give DACA recipients a pathway to citizenship while also authorizing a review of current border security needs, with no commitment to future funding.

The Senate is slated to begin an immigration debate over the next week - though it's unclear what a bill would look like.

Trump's comments on Tuesday stand in stark contrast with his previous remarks on the issue. He noted extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was "beyond what anyone could have imagined". "They could have easily made a deal but chose to play Shutdown politics instead".

Still, many lawmakers are uneasy about what might happen to the Dreamers after March 5, and Democrats - and Trump himself - are using that uncertainty as leverage to help force a deal.

Talks to resolve the legal status of young undocumented immigrants and enact new border security measures remain stalled in the closely-divided Senate Monday as a new bipartisan proposal to resolve the impasse was dismissed by the White House as insufficient.

The latest bipartisan attempt at an agreement, unveiled Monday from Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Chris Coons (D-DE) that would have shielded Dreamers from deportation while simultaneously strengthening border security. But President Trump tweeted that the idea is a "total waste of time" because it doesn't immediately authorize spending the billions to build new barriers along the border. "March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA".
